Public Notice

Boat Launch Reconstruction

This is to notice the boat launch reconstruction project to take place on Indian Lake. This is an approved project as part of the Lewey Lake Campground Unit Management Plan. The existing launch and parking area is over 40 years old and does not meet current standards. The old ramp will be removed and disposed of off site at an approved disposal area. The modernization plan provides for a launch ramp sufficiently wide to safely and conveniently handle a vehicle and trailer. Additional parking spaces will be added to provide for campers and day users on Indian Lake who are now parking on Route 30 or on the side of existing campground roads. As a result of this project, these unsafe parking practices will be eliminated. A total of 407 trees will be cut to facilitate this project. No rare, threatened or endangered plants have been identified in this area. Construction is to take place in 2007.
